The Sun Spoofs Old Spice to Pimp Page 3 Girls

page_3_old_spice_rosie_jones.jpg

Well this is interesting. And sexy. And quite ingenious. To tout the 40th anniversary of its Page 3 Girls, The Sun has created a spoof of Old Spice's I'm on A Horse. The results are quite good. Shot in one take like the original, Page 3 girl Rosie Jones asks men to look at their woman and then back at her thereby coming to the sad conclusion most men's women are clearly not Rosie.

But, according to Rosie, that's OK because men can have her and all the other Page 3 girls in their hands everyday simply by picking up a copy of The Sun. And she has gifts. In her coconuts.

Quiznos Has More Fat Rolls Than Subway

quiznos_spec_more_meat.jpg

After watching this spec spot for Quiznos which compares the chain's subs to Subway's, we never want to eat at either establishment ever again. The thought that we'd be eating cbubbies for lunch just, well disgusts us. We get the analogy though. That much is clear. Quiznos does, indeed, have more meat which, um, will make you more fat which, um, makes using fat people to depict sandwiches a perfect sound creative strategy.

Jeffrey McCarthy directed and Holly Levin wrote the copy.
